The Advanced Wound Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers® and offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.
“Our goal is to reach every patient that would benefit from our services,” said Kim Becker, Program Director of Faith Regional’s Advanced Wound Center. “This honor reflects the quality of wound care offered to our patients throughout the area and beyond.”
Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.
